If you deliberately set out to be less than you are capable, you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life.
God is a community of persons and He has created you in His image, not as an isolated individual, but as a person whom He has invited to a communal life with Himself and with the whole human family.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.
Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.
We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
Manifest plainness, Embrace simplicity, Reduce selfishness, Have few desires.
Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
True happiness...is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
All who would win joy, must share it; happiness was born a twin.
Happiness... it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
We were together. I forget the rest.
Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.
It is necessary to help others, not only in our prayers, but in our daily lives. If we find we cannot help others, the least we can do is to desist from harming them.
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
Happiness is a virtue, not its reward.
It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come.
The two enemies of human happiness are pain and boredom.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
Part of the happiness of life consists not in fighting battles, but in avoiding them. A masterly retreat is in itself a victory.
